Happy Mother's Day !

First of all we want to wish our Mothers a Very Happy Mother's Day! I wish I could be able to see my mom and I know Mike would have loved to have see his. Even though we are so far away we love you both and hope you had a wonderful day.

Mom, so good to talk to you today. I'm grateful to my brothers for visiting you today. It is hard being the only daughter and being so far away. I love you very much!

I had such a wonderful week/weekend. Lacy came up from Dallas to be with us for her birthday/mothers day visit. Lacy's birthday was on the 4th, and of course Mother's Day being today. I was allowed to sleep in, and believe me I never do. I often wish I could, but today I did. Boy do I feel good today.
I was greeted by all three of my daughters this morning along with my husband with homemade French Toast sprinkled with powdered sugar and topped with big beautiful strawberries. YUM! This was a treat that Wendy came up with. Mike and she read the Bernstein Bears Mother's Day, and they have the recipe in it for French Toast. Wendy has wanted to do this for the past two years, but this year she got her way and helped prepare it with Daddy's help. Gotta love that kid! I asked if they used egg beaters and the reply was no, because you know Wendy loves to crack the eggs. ha
I love all of my cards from my family. That made my day!

Finally, Happy Mother's Day to all of my Friends who have just become new mommies! Sherry, just got her baby,Cassie, on the 3rd and is spending her first Mother's Day in China, Guangzhou. Susan is spending her fist Mother's Day with Maiya along with celebrating her and Maiya's birthdays today as well. What a treat to celebrate their birthdays together and that they land the day after Mother's Day. Lynn, is also spending Mother's Day with her newest addition T. Michele, just got her son Ryan and is spending her very first Mother's Day with him as well.
To all of my other China Sisters who have children and are waiting still waiting, or who have their children and are settling in. Not to mention all of my China Sisters who are still waiting and this is their first child....) Happy Mother's Day to each and everyone of you! May all of us who are still waiting be celebrating next Mother's Day with our new little ones.

Love you all!!
